down. he is going to propose a number of tax cuts or tax preferences as well as spending increases to try to do that and that may exacerbate the short-term but then he pivoted which i think is important to talk about the structural deficit. and that is what threatens the state. it's not the ice that is above the water. it's the ice that is below the water. it's not the debt on the balance sheet, it is what is off the balance sheet that disrupts the future and he talked about three things, he talked about freezing a portion of discretionary spending, less than 20% of the federal budget for three years. three years is better than one book, and you know, frankly it is a modest first step especially since discretionary spending has increased 20% plus over the last two years in the second we talked about supporting the pedro rule the senate might be voting on right now. there's lots of holes big enough to drive a truck through and on the other hand it does provide some come strains that otherwise wouldn't be there so i think it is a modest step forward. third and most important he came
million. they've decided we have to get our tax exemption. saturday go about it? been launched 2400 lawsuit against the irs and individual agents. they hired private detectives to go around to conferences where they trail people and find out who's drinking too much, who was sleeping around to publish articles in the magazines about this and pass them the steps of 1111 constitution avenue, which is headquarters of the irs. they intimidated the irs. now whatever the merits of their case, those were the facts that surrounded their getting a tax exemption. it was -- you know, i just said they owed a billion dollars. the irs prime and $12 million did they forget the billion dollars. they gave them the authority to decide on their own which parts of the church are actually tax exempt. they even made our ron hubbard's novels scriptures those are also tax the m. it was such a thoroughgoing that very. it's hard to even imagine. bear in mind, the irs is not the best equipped agency. but they are the only agency that has that authority. once the irs made that finding, the vast protections of t
. remember, if you want to help poverty this isn't the way to do it. the earned income tax credit does it. take this out of politics. take this out of unions. remember, 67% of people that make minimum wage work part time. $53,000 a year is what the average person who makes a minimum wage, that household, makes. this does not do lot for poverty but it does hurt small business. >> does it hurt the young people, the college students who are flipping burgers? they don't want to make a career of it but they're part time and raising the wage would probably get them out of a job. >> actually, i totally disagree with that. there's very little evidence to suggest that. a modest increase in the minimum wage, tying it to inflation, actually has a net job loss. >> they're asking for double. >> i don't think that's appropriate. i support the president's call to raise the mimum wage. as he said in february, tie that to inflation, tie that to cost of living. that makes sense. how can anybody earn a living on $15,000 a year? doesn't make sense. i don't support a whole sale increase of it to 15. i think t
taxes in detroit, bring the corporate income tax down to five percent, the personal income tax down to five percent, make the capital gains tax zero, take the payroll tax and bring it down for the employee and the employer. without bringing any new money to detroit, just leaving money in detroit is over a billion dollars that would stimulate detroit's economy. >> basically a flat tax but flat nonetheless. >> absolutely. flat and very low. we also look at regulations and try to get rid of the owner's regulations that's making it expensive for city government and for businesses to locate in detroit. we think if you combine all of this, that it would be the model for how you would rescue cities across the country but any impoverished area. we have impoverished areas in eastern kentucky. we think this same plan would rescue them and parts of louisville and other major cities. >> maybe the country while you're at it. we have had five years of spread the wealth. you didn't build that. share share economics. where has obama failed detroit? >> here's the problem. the president says let me t

. the increase of sales tax is another option we considered. that would generate about $73 million a year -- again requiring voter approval as do the general obligation bonds. proposition k is the half sales supplement tax revenue allocated here in san francisco and take the revenues as sales taxes are generated and advance them and get more of the cash up front and execute projects sooner and in other words between the project window and they would incur financing cost for that but it would give them the cash up front and other possibilities here. there are revenue bonds considered in addition to what has been released this year. a possible series for 2016 of $150 million and 2019 for the assignment amount and a portion of that can be funding bicycle projects and this is from discretionary revenues and currently there are some funds moved from the sfmta operating budget into capital projects each year. it is a small percentage of the budget but that's another possibility for funds to be transferred and general fund money unrestricted from the city and county of san francisco could po

on education reform, the best way forward on tax reform. jack kempe would have horrible fights with phil gramm and others and then they would come together and come up with a tax reform plan. there were to be constant battles on the budget. there were a lot of different ways forward in the conservatives we believe even into the 90s, 1994 we always talked about a legislative laboratory of ideas and you talked about the place of ideas and we talked about the free marketplace of ideas. we would close the doors and go downstairs and debate nonstop among ourselves until we came up with the best plan for reform moving for it. just not the case anymore. if you veer off the path a little bit to the right or a little bit to the left there are ideological witch hunts and people suggesting you are insufficiently conservative and insufficiently republican. that is the 9% party. that's the record low party. if you go outside of the city that i love and that i love living in and working in, but clinically you go outside of the city and the republican party is a pretty vibrant party. we control 60% of the go

federal tax credits. the government encourages you. >> tell us about those? is it worth it to do it for the tax credit? >> it's a good deal. average price is $30,000. you can't go very far on it, not happy in it. i haven't ridden in it. i'm just talking about what consumer reports said. >> you would class it up. >> i would pimp that ride, absolutely. >> what are car manufacturers thinking? is this a big bottom line boost for them or will they back off because they are not earning money on them? >> they are really cutting into their margins. they are doing that because there's no other way to move these things off the lot. again, a lot has to do with gas prices. once they go up we see more demand. prices for other cars are going up. in one month from october to november, on average 3%, 1.1% year over year. these drastic price cuts could get them off the lot. >> would be nice to get into a tesla. >> it's a pretty car. >> as far as the gas prices you're talking about, the gas taxes are going up? >> they could. lots of talk that the gas tax is the way to fund -- can't find money anyw

for the last three years so i had to liquidate by 401 plan, i don't know how it's going to affect my taxes for next year, also the new health insurance law, i aoep not so sure how it will affect that. i was in hopes to get some money back to put into an ira in hopes to bring my income down for the year, but again, this is pretty much just a hardship case. >> thank you very much, any questions to the appellant, supervisor farrell? >> thanks for being here today. a quick question for you. have you talked to our department of public works? i know there's a question about a fee waiver. to be clear, that's what you're asking for? >> right, they did ask me about the deferral and i said no, i was going for the waiver or the reduction. >> okay, let me ask you a question then. in the alternative though, we can go through this process and we will right now with the waiver application. again, no one's prejudging anything here, given the way that things are going, i think it's doubtful. is a deferral something -- i would like to be as helpful as i can to ensure whatever we can do within the confines o
handouts. he said lower the tax rate dramatically, 5% corporate and individual tax rate. school choice, education tax credits. various provisions to make it easier for people to invest in the inner city. he said, look, we tried government solutions. they haven't worked. so let's try market-based solutions, and that's his answer to a lot of these issues. i have to tell you, a steep road they have to climb. in detroit, for instance, in 2012, obama got 97% of the vote. mitt romney, 2%. >> does he actually believe the unemployment number? you know, there's been some speculation that it doesn't really accurately reflect what the situation is in our country? >> well, he points out the fact that for blacks, the unemployment rate is roughly double what it is for whites. and you know, regardless of what the statistics are, he understands there's a serious unemployment problem around the country but especially with minorities in the inner cities. he's saying that the typical liberal democratic solution is not the right way to go, that you need to go market-based and try something else because th
investment for our tax payers? >> it is not spending, it's an investment. you are absolutely correct. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> i appreciate this opportunity. it's a fascinating conversation. i want to focus on the testimony of dr. robinson. hearing is important because it highlights the testimony of now moving as a away from a philosophy toward higher education that focuses only on access and starts to look at success. i'm a product of pell grants. i could not have graduated from wabash college without pell grants. i have lived the importance of these degrees great but the world has changed a lot in last 40 years. i would say the federal financial aid system is one of the great success stories in the history of the federal government. access, weal was provided access to higher education for people in this country like never before. the challenge is, when these programs started 40 years ago, access was enough. when you looked at the income potential is someone with just a little time in college, your income potential was higher. today, that has changed. if you don't gr
at that plan. you had sent a flat individual and corporate tax rate with 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits and loosen visa rules to encourage entrepreneurs to open businesses. while those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. the president pours a trillion dollars into the nation's economy when you divided it out, it was about $400,000 per child. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and loser rs. with this stimulus i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who have earned it, so the customers have pickeded out the successful people. those people get more money. like i met a young man, young african man who has his own restaurant. his first question is do you have any tax breaks for me for my business. that's what what would do. help people in business and trying. >> but i don't have to tell you senator, republicans have a steep hill to climb in inner city neighborhoods. in
protests, they were the opposition, the protestors who wanted to bring back taxing. the media outlets the government had at its proposal. when his sister won the 2011 election, now it's the new opposition on the streets. >> the media from thai land is deeply divided by the confrontation within the faction that believes in him. they see him as an agent for broader reform there is a political conflict. the division in the media will play out very strongly. >> you've seen different factions, political factions representing the polarization of thai politics. they're trying to establish their power through the media. the blue sky channel has cleared connections. a number of others have cleared political factions. >> that doesn't just apply to the national media. it extends into the provinces and other towns and cities in;f thailand where you'll find t.v. stations and their only purpose is to broadcast messages about a political group they're aligned with and spend time criticizing the opposition. >> during the unrest in 2010, he was in compile, but visible in video messages, exhorting prot
that is called mandatory spending. keep the budget caps in place. not raise taxes. which is important in the weak economy. and actually avoid a government shutdown. i'm hopeful by the end of the week we can come together and achieve it. >> one of the sticking points, the extension of the unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed. senator durbin, nancy pelosi saying there is no deal without having those benefits extended. are the democrats united on that? no extension, no deal? >> i don't think we have reached the point where we have said this is it, take it or leaf it. i spoke to patty murray the other night. negotiations are moving in the right direction. making progress. they haven't closed the deal. but i certainly hope as part of it, the negotiators will take to heart what the president had to say. there are working families across america that are struggling. there are unemployed families that need a helping hand. we have to protect and preserve the safety net in america and give these working families a fighting chance. >> can the republicans live with that? can you get an extensio
. if they are going punt on entitlements and taxes, which they're going to do, they will not do it next year either, are they? >> i am starting to believe that none of that can happen meaning structural changes to entitlements until we have another big election or some kind of big economic shock that forces these lawmakers to come together. the house is a big part of the problem but the senate is becoming a big part of the problem as well. this goes back to politics and the fact that individual lawmakers, republicans specifically are so concerned about challenges from the right instead of having a democrat challenge them that they are not going to cut a deal that makes them look like they are not conservative. >> they only have about a week left, will anything they will get done? >> there are things they have to get done. this year, we have unemployment insurance expiring for 1.3 million americans. there is a farm bill that is expiring. you can see shocks in the dairy market. there is also other housekeeping things. we will confirm another fed governor. there's a lot that needs to be addressed. >>
, focus on taxes. downplay the social issues. downplay the gay stuff. downplay especially the women stuff. once they got into office, all of a sudden all these social issues came out of the woodwork. that's where we're seeing a lot of these anti-choice bills, whether it's transvaginal ultrasound watchamacallit issues. >> i'm proud of you. you said it. >> of course it's a very clinical thing. i think you raise a very good point. come the next election cycle now that women and everyone knows what they're up to, there will be consequences for this. because, as you say, it's not the message. it's the policy that's the problem. >> you know, david, though, to that point, how about equal pay? if we're going to talk about economic issues, fine. equal pay. access to health care. for a lot of women, access to birth control, not having to pay that co-pay, that is an economic issue. because that's money that's in your pocket that can go to something else. and, yet, they're not so hot on either of those issues either. >> what can the republicans say on those issues? they can't really speak to those is
. >> item 15 is a resolution approving a waiver of the payment in lieu of taxes for fiscal years 1991-1992 to 212-2013. >> this resolutions adopted, next item. >> item 16 is if resolution to authorize and direct the competitive sale of general obligation bonds not the exceed approximately 210 million for the san francisco general hospital improvement. >> same house in call, this resolution's adopted, next item. >> item 17 is a resolution approving the issuance of tax exempt obligations by the association of bay area governments finance authority for a non-profit corporations in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed 4 million 500 thousand to finance and refinance. >> same house, incall, this resolution is adopted. item 18. >> this is to resolution declaring the intent of city and county of san francisco to reimburse certain expenditures from proceeds of future bonded indebtedness authorizing the director of the mayor's office of housing and community dwomment. >> in-house incall, this resolution is adopted. >> colleagues we don't have any 2:30 special orders today, i would like t
work, but it might. say you had a 4-5 percent national sales tax on all goods and services and you use this money totally to pay for medicaid. now medicare is taken care of it. so you would cap all of the people not on medicaid and medicare. you would cap the rates that insurance companies could ask of them and lower the price for all of the people that are inbetweens. i wondered what you thought of that idea. >> kathy, why do you think that is a good idea? >> because i think it it would be a fair way, and it would bring the rates down, and it would be people could make the choice if they didn't want to pay a national sales tax and if they didn't want to they would not by the skis or the new dress or whatever. and it would just -- i think it would lower the rate of people between medicare/medicaid. >> thank you very much. let's see what congresswoman thinks about that idea. >> thank you. well, kathy, i really feel like the affordable care act was important because it focused beyond just medicare/medicaid. medicaid was expanded in the states where you have governors and legislative memb
in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you would set a flat individual and corporate tax rate in those depressed areas of 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits. and loosen visa rules to encourage foreign sbe pentrepre to open businesses. senator, while critics say those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. i mean, the president poured a trillion dollars into the nation's economy. when you divided it out it was about $400,000 per job. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and losers. with this stimulus that i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who earned it. so the customers have actually picked out the successful people, the ones they choose to buy products from. those people get more money. like i met a young man, young african-american man who has his own restaurant. his first question is, do you have any tax breaks for me for my business? that's what thi
different. it's more similar to seniors who sign up for medicare, people who file their taxes. you know, there are a whole bunch of things where you're providing information to the government. it's protected. it's governed by a whole series of laws. the nsa issues a broader issue. young people are rightly sensitive to the needs to preserve their privacy and maintain internet freedom. and so i am. that's part of not just our first amendment rights and expectations in this country, but it's particularly something that young people care about because they spend so much time texting and, you know, instagraming. >> whatever. >> something's coming up every single day. so all of us spend more and more of our lives in cyber space. now, the challenge is first of all we do have people who are trying to hurt us. and they communicate through these same systems. if we're going to do a good job preventing a terrorist attack in this country, a weapon of mass destruction getting onto the new york subway system, et cetera, we do want to keep eyes on some bad actors. the second thing is that the same cyb
